Wondering if anyone else has experienced a posterior vitreous detachment, which is an age-related eye condition. I am 10 weeks out from this, and have been seen by my retinal specialist twice, once right when it happened and then at the 6 week mark. Everything has been fine but I'm still really bothered by the light flashes and the floaters are absolutely terrible. Optho says everything is fine but this has caused me so much anxiety. Wondering what others' experiences have been. How long did your flashes of light last? Thanks.

Yes, I think that is what my Opthamologist called it. I thought I had a spider hanging from my hair when it first happened but it was a floater. He also said there wasn’t much he could do about it. The floaters used to be very light and hardly noticed them but now my floater(s) are very near the center of my right eye’s line of sight and very distracting. I didn’t have the flashes, much after the first day or two.

Did any of your doctors have a treatment for it?
